Created by the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) in 1988, the YEA pay tribute to remarkable young Canadian entrepreneurs who are outstanding not only because of their success in business, but also because of their creativity, innovative spirit and community involvement.

In 2011, ten YEA will be given according to the following geographical distribution: Newfoundland & Labrador; Prince Edward Island; Nova Scotia; New Brunswick; Quebec; Ontario; Manitoba; Saskatchewan; Alberta & Northwest Territories; British Columbia & Yukon.

The YEA winners will be invited to receive their awards at a gala which will take place on May 3, 2011 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

During an inspiring and colourful ceremony, the winners’ accomplishments will be publicly acknowledged and celebrated by over 350 business people, representatives of BDC and its partners, as well as representatives of various levels of government.

The YEA winners will also be eligible for two special awards to be given during the gala:
